    News Elvis Stojko in Land of Eternals on PIC®Skates

    Three-time World Champion and two-time Olympic Silver Medalist, Elvis Stojko, will be featured in the Beau Idéal Production of, [URL="http://www.burlingtonpac.ca/what-s-on/event_/land-of-the-eternals-featuring-elvis-stojko_7215.html"]'Land of the Eternals'[/URL], which will display the artistry and athleticism of skating, through a unique combination of storytelling, dance, and much more!

    Also appearing alongside Elvis Stojko is a unique cast of skating talents such as the British adagio team of Fiona Zaldua and Dimitry Sukhanov, American skater Dan Hollander, Roselle Doyle and more, 'Land of the Eternals' promises to deliver a blend of unique and creative storytelling, diverse music and dance with outstanding choreography, for an unforgettable evening of Entertainment!

    Here is Roselle Doyle skating in a recent show.

    Here is a brief biography.

    Though she was in love with her chosen sport, Roselle had seen the focus of "competition judging" shift from artistry to technical merit and her flawless presentation ability wasn't taking her where she needed to go. She then decided to end her amateur career and begin her life as a professional skater.

    In case you are not familiar with "adagio skating;" this is pairs skating adapted to a smaller ice surface. It features a lot of spectacular lifts and carries that are illegal in regular pairs skating.

    For instance, the move atstarting at 3:00 in this vid is called a "Detroiter." (I think this is named after the World War II airplane called the Detroiter -- the lady is the propeller. )

    It's nice Elvis is still doing something with skating. I thought he had retired to the world of Kart racing!

    Isn't he doing some coaching (Mexico); some karate (just a few years ago he won the world silver medal I believe), some singing, some driving and now this? What does he do for money I wonder.

    So are PIC Skates what they used with the skating nuns during the Olympic Closing Ceremony?

    Wow, that's really impressive. Way better than artistic roller skating. Can you jump in these skates?

    Yes. People are doing doubles and now they can do triples with the P11 Ball Pic.

    Here is a clip of a Marine Labro at the World Championships in Paris in July.
